NEW - Introducing NEPAnode's MapWarper

July 2, 2014, 5:26 p.m.

Check out the newest addition to the NEPAnode project: MapWarper - a web-based tool allowing users to upload any map image (ex. Historical, Zoning, Land Use, Technical Drawings, Site Surveys, Project Applications, etc.). Within the tool users can cross reference where points on the image match points on a map to create a geographically accurate layer which can then be used in GIS system/tool. More importantly users can add these images as layers in NEPAnode by copying and pasting a link (No uploading or downloading). In MapWarper find the "Export" tab after clicking on the map image you want to use, right click and copy the WMS link, in NEPAnode click "View" Map, Use the green "Add a Layer" icon, select "Add New Server", paste the WMS link, and click add layer to select the 'warped" image. Click "MAPWARPER" on NEPAnode's navigation bar or by going to http://warp.nepanode.anl.gov.

The Emissions & Generation Resource Integrated Database (eGRID) is a comprehensive source of data on the environmental characteristics of almost all electric power generated in the United States. These environmental characteristics include: air emissions for nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide; emissions rates; net generation; resource mix; and many other attributes. eGRID data can be used to support the following activities: greenhouse gas registries and inventories, carbon footprinting, consumer information disclosure, development of emissions inventories and emission standards, analysis of changing power markets, and estimation of avoided emissions.

The goal of developing HydroSHEDS was to generate key data layers to support regional and global watershed analyses, hydrological modeling, and freshwater conservation planning at a quality, resolution and extent that had previously been unachievable. HydroSHEDS (Hydrological data and maps based on SHuttle Elevation Derivatives at multiple Scales) provides hydrographic information in a consistent and comprehensive format for regional and global-scale applications. HydroSHEDS offers a suite of geo-referenced data sets (vector and raster), including stream networks, watershed boundaries, drainage directions, and ancillary data layers such as flow accumulations, distances, and river topology information. HydroSHEDS is derived from elevation data of the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) at 3 arc-second resolution. Available HydroSHEDS resolutions range from 3 arc-second (approx. 90 meters at the equator) to 5 minute (approx. 10 km at the equator) with seamless near-global extent.

There's a growing awareness around the physical, regulatory, and reputational water risks to companies and their investors. Robust, comparable, and comprehensive data is needed to help assess these water-related risks. In response to this demand, WRI developed the Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas, including 12 global indicators and maps of water-related risk. Companies can use this information to prioritize actions; investors can utilize it to leverage financial interest to improve water management; and governments can use the data to engage with the private sector to seek solutions for more equitable and sustainable water governance.
